Setting the system property javax.xml.transform.TransformerFactory to
"com.icl.saxon.TransformerFactoryImpl" (in the case of Saxon 6.5.2) also
ensures that Saxon rather than Xalan will be picked up.

Incidentally, this JAXP interface is a wonderful beast. I had a user
recently who was running Saxon from the Xalan command line...
